Any opinions are really appreciated!


Yup take it!. I lease mine for 250 a month. :slight_smile: Which dealer. I will go lease another one for $70.

for $70, you can count me in too lol

Exactly. How many do they have? we will pay you a $200 finder’s fee :slight_smile:

He qualifies for fleet and grad, so have to take that into consideration.

what’s the breakdown? isnt it 7500 federal,

2500 ca rebate? which is on hold now. but you usually put 2500 as a downpayment to reduce cap cost

fleet is 1.5k?

how much is college grad?

I think college is 1k

If you are a recent college graduate, you have places you want to go, which is why BMW is giving you $1,000 off a new BMW or $1,500 off a Certified Pre-Owned BMW when you purchase a BMW and finance with BMW Financial Services. No matter which model you choose, you can tell the world you have arrived – for less than you think.


BMW College Graduate Program

thanks, everyone - $1,000 is grad, fleet is $1,500. combine with $7,500 federal rebate it is total of $10k

Hi Will, I’m also in CA and I’m leasing my i3 rex today. Your deal is better than the deal I’m getting do you mind sharing which dealer your working with and what sales person? I would love to get one from them too.

how much was below msrp was the advertised sale?

sale price of $42,988 was advertised. msrp of $47,845 was advertised.

I’ll ask how many they have :slight_smile:

They’re saying they only have 1 available on their website, but I’ll double check with my salesperson

Thanks. I don’t mind if they have another car with a higher msrp. Looks like your dealership is giving good discounts on i3’s.

i3 rex also qualifies for california rebate

Never mind the discount. The rebate is huge 10k! Yuge! The residual is coming out at 69% as well. Yuge!

I’m also at the bay area looking for I3, can you share which dealership that you went for?

Thank you.

don’t understand how residual is 69% though. looks like theres been reports of residual being bumped recently

24 month lease don’t qualify for 2.5K CA rebate (needs to be 30 months). perhaps residual is higher now!
